Marc Chagall – Sirène et Poisson

Marc Chagall, Sirène et Poisson is a lithograph on Arches wove paper. Created in 1967, this original color lithograph is from the series Nice and the Côte d’Azur, comprised of twelve color lithographs. This lithograph print is numbered from the edition of 150 in pencil in the lower left margin, and hand signed by Marc Chagall in pencil in the lower right margin.  Catalogue reference: Charles Sorlier 28.

Over 20 years, the artist fulfilled countless important public and private commissions: stained-glass windows (for example in Metz, Reims, Jerusalem, the UN HQ in New York, Zurich and Mayence), paintings (ceiling of the Opéra National de Paris, painted murals in the New York Metropolitan Opera), mosaics (e.g. The Four Seasons, 1974, Chicago) tapestries (for example the Gobelins tapestries he wove for the Knesset – Israeli Parliament) and stage work (set design and costumes for Daphnis et Chloé at the Opéra National de Paris).

At the same time Chagall produced a great many lithographs and engravings for illustrations, particularly for Tériade or his Paris-based trader Aimé Maeght. In 1966, he donated the Biblical Message to the French State, which was firstly exhibited at the Louvre before inspiring the creation of the museum in Nice – inaugurated in 1973 in Chagall’s presence. He continued to work right up until his death on 28th March 1985 in Saint-Paul-de-Vence where he is buried.

Description

Marc Chagall, Sirène et Poisson is a lithograph on Arches wove paper. Created in 1967, this original color lithograph is from the series Nice and the Côte d’Azur, comprised of twelve color lithographs. This lithograph print is numbered from the edition of 150 in pencil in the lower left margin, and hand signed by Marc Chagall in pencil in the lower right margin.  Catalogue reference: Charles Sorlier 28.

In the South of France, Chagall began to branch out technically and worked with ceramics at the Ramiés in the Madoura Gallery in Vallauris, in the same studio as Picasso. Through his friendship with Father Couturier, he became involved in the programme of Notre-Dame de toute Grâce Church in Assy where he created a large ceramic mural and his first stained-glass windows for the baptistry.

Over 20 years, the artist fulfilled countless important public and private commissions: stained-glass windows (for example in Metz, Reims, Jerusalem, the UN HQ in New York, Zurich and Mayence), paintings (ceiling of the Opéra National de Paris, painted murals in the New York Metropolitan Opera), mosaics (e.g. The Four Seasons, 1974, Chicago) tapestries (for example the Gobelins tapestries he wove for the Knesset – Israeli Parliament) and stage work (set design and costumes for Daphnis et Chloé at the Opéra National de Paris).
